Notice is hereby given that this RFP will be available on the Commission's website and hard copies available according the schedule and from the locations indicated below.


The PIER Program, administered by the California Energy Commission, funds certain public interest research, development and demonstration (RD&D) efforts that will advance energy science or technology not adequately provided by competitive and regulated markets. PIER's mission is to conduct public interest energy RD&D that improves the quality of life for Californians by providing environmentally sound, safe, reliable and affordable energy services and products. RD&D organizations include individuals, businesses, utilities, and public or private research institutions.

The purpose of this RFP is to initiate an Electric Energy Storage (EES) demonstration project to facilitate turnkey, grid connected applications of EES to solve existing problems in California and by extension the rest of the US. The term turnkey, as used in this RFP, means that Bidders must design, test, deliver, install, demonstrate, and operate an EES system.
